Every couple of years I get my life together and run a marathon up and down Pike's Peak in Colorado. I'm somewhat serious when I run but I'm not competitive at all - I still take a picture or two during the marathon and often am talking to other runners. In the past I've always worn one of my dad's old Timex watches just to keep a pace. I was thinking this year it might be cool to run it with a watch that has an altimeter and thermostat onboard, so obviously the Riseman came to mind.
However, I really don't know much about it's feature set. What I'd like a watch to do is log the altitude and temperature at different times automatically over a roughly 7 hour period. At the same time, I think it would be cool if I could manually enter a log at specific mile marker points. For example, when I hit mile 9 on the ascent, I could somehow hit a button and log the time, temp, and altitude at that location. I'm just wondering if all this (and maybe more) is possible with the Riseman since it shows up here for pretty cheap. Otherwise, if I had to get a Protrek or something, I probably wouldn't do it because I think the watch might be too big, too nice, and too expensive for my needs.
The race isn't until August so I have plenty of time to save up. This isn't really a necessity for me, but I just thought it might be kind of a fun excuse to buy a watch.
